hi i went through ivf in november this yr had egg transfer on 4 december which all came to great news im pregnant went for my scan yest and i should of been 7 weeks and 3 days but my only shows me at 6 weeks and 1 day i seen the heart beat and everything but am so worried because of dates the nurse from the ivf clinic said not to worry it might catch up :s but all babys that small grow at same rate im sooo worried can any one help me please thank you xxxxx
Congratulations! Usually if a normal fetal heart rate is identified there is about a 90% chance that the pregnancy will continue. Very early ultrasounds can have an error of up to 3-4 days built in to the calculations. So, that would put you a little closer to your expected dates. eg. 6 weeks 5 days. The nurse is correct, eat right take your prenatals, say prayers if you do so, and wait fo the next ultrasound. I hope it all goes well!
